If you love reading and discussing young adult literature, come visit our Talking Books session in April! We will be discussing Marjane Satrapis’ graphic novel Persepolis.

Persepolis is a coming of age story against the backdrop of the Islamic revolution. It details Marjane’s childhood in Iran in the 1970s, and how the revolution affected her family, her spirituality and most important of all – Marjane herself. The simple, almost juvenile images and humorous commentary contrast the horrors she witnesses, making the novel a compelling reading experience.
